Are aluminium windows energy efficient?
Being a metal, aluminium is a naturally good thermal conductor. However, thanks to polyamide thermal breaking technology, it’s become one of the most thermally efficient window frame materials available. A thermal break occurs when a layer of plastic is inserted between the internal and external of the frame, creating a ‘break’. This break slows the rate of thermal transfusion, preventing heat from entering your home in Summer, and exiting your home in Winter.
Aluminium windows, therefore, can achieve astoundingly low U-values, ranging from 1.8 W/m²K to 0.8 W/m²K. That means lower energy bills for you and your family. Furthermore, since aluminium is 100% recyclable, the windows will help to reduce your carbon footprint at every stage of their life cycle.Get a Free Quote
